today's espresso
fires my mind, froth wakes my tongue
fails to sweeten words

Yes, I know the feeling. I'm having to dig deep to find some sweet words for a certain someone right now. Interesting picture, and take on the prompt.

Know the feeling! Sometimes too alert is not a good thing--for anyone looking for sweet words.

Loved this.

Dear one!
You do this so well!
Wow...
Have you tried changing your coffee brand? (smiles!)

Now that is what my lattes are all about. And is that a haloed angel I see on the pink background?

That's what they say, Sue. But after almost two weeks that espresso does everything now.
I'm writing from Honfleur, France, tonight. I should be back to read OSI blogs by sometime next week.
